Young sports stars were feted an honoured at a function held at Malibongwe Restuarant at the Look Out Hill in first week of December.

Sibulele Jack (13) from Langa was voted City Vision/ Siyadlala Sports Star of Year.

Jack is a Thornthon Primary Grade 8 learner, and Project Playground (PPG) attacking wing and is prolific in front of the goalposts.

Jack was recently part of the PPG team that toured China and played in a international Gothia Cup where he sprayed five goals past different goalkeepers.

“The team lost in the final largely due to the influence of the man in the middle,” his coach alleged.

Coach Zamile Barnes describes Jack as the future of the club. He is currently the top goal scorer in his team.

Other nominees were Ntombizodwa Mntuyedwa (Netball), Viwe Mbata (Hockey), Unathi Sikunana (Athletics), Ncebakazi Mgodeli, (Cycling), Chulumanco Hoyi (Karate), Sakhile Fulani, (Soccer), Sivuyise Tshaka and Entle Ntsuntswana (both Soccer).
